6:19pm
meteorological term? >> yeah. that was in the first year's courses. >> right up there with yucky. >> yucky, funky. it is not bad weather. we're not dealing with bad weather but it is a little funky out there when you consider the temperature are running 10 to 20 degrees below average over the last three days. we've seen plenty of clouds. those clouds still around. we thought earlier today, we thought look. the sun is starting to come out in parts of the area. the clouds moved right back in as expected across the region today. 62 degrees, the current temperature at the airport. the winds out of the northeast at seven miles an hour with plenty of cloud cover. the big question is not the way it is out there right now. what about the day tomorrow? the nats take on the cards. let's go into the city. and then right through the mall over toward the southeast. we're looking at temperatures tomorrow morning into temperatures, tomorrow afternoon, rather, around 1:00. the official game time. 107. the temperature around 67 degrees under partly sunny skies. winds out of west at five to ten
6:20pm
miles an hour. i think we're looking at a very nice day for a baseball game right here in the city. hopefully we can take the 2-1 advantage. 58 in martinsburg. 61 in leesburg right now. 61 in culpepper. along the eastern shore. coming in at 57 degrees. so still on the cool side. we're still about five to ten degrees below average. we're also five to ten degrees above where we were yesterday. so at least we're heading in the right direction. as far as the radar is concern, no rain to talk about. i don't think we'll see much in the way of rain. it could be a possible sprinkle overnight of once again, i think most of us will remain on the dry side. there is a little system coming through. you can see it right here. see it? coming right through the area. that's some cloud cover and that's why the clouds have moved back. in that's why we could see that sprinkle or. two most of us will stay on the dry side. this will move through. we'll see clouds early tomorrow morning. as this little area of stormy know continues to move through, i think we'll break out into
6:21pm
some sunshine. i think most of the game could see enough sunshine. cool temperatures continue. showers, mostly down to the south and the east. the area of low pressure moves off the coast. tomorrow, rather a nice day when you consider the last couple days, we need to see some sunshine. i think we'll get that tomorrow morning. we would like to see a little warm-up ahead of the next cold front. that next cold front comes through tomorrow evening. it will be a dry cold front. not expecting any rain. what it will do is bring in another cooler air mass as high pressure moves in from the great lakes and canada. we'll see plenty of sunshine on thursday. the temperature will be about five to ten degrees below average for the day on thursday. it does look like things begin to moderate as we head into the weekend. this evening, morning clouds. still on the cool side. tomorrow morning you'll stem outside. it could be some patchy fog in some locations, like today, although i think it could be more widespread. not as cool. temperatures about 53 in the
6:22pm
city under mostly cloudy if not totally cloudy. we'll see clouds to start the day but some clearing late in the day and warmer temperatures. 67 to 72 with some sunshine. that's a pretty nice fall afternoon. 64 on thursday as we go back below average. 67 on friday. 67 on saturday. and we will wake up to the upper 30s for most locations. the city, coming in low to mid 40s. the weekend pretty good, i think. saturday looking good. but sunday, really nice. 75 degrees on sunday with some sunshine. the only thing on sunday that i'm a little worried about, we could have 20, maybe 25-mile-an-hour winds. that's the same wind that helps to warm us up. >> okay. we can't have everything. >> coming up, the university of maryland has chosen a side in the gambling debate in maryland. >> and also, a mother wants answers after her son died. the son was pepper sprayed by
6:23pm
police. coming up in sports, the nationals getting ready to send let me tell you how i will create 12 million jobs
6:24pm
when president obama couldn't. first, my energy independence policy means more than three million new jobs. many of them in manufacturing. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and for small business creates seven million more. and expanding trade, cracking down on china,
6:25pm

6:28pm
redskins went public in support of question 7. these civic and faith leaders are renouncing what they call the redskins intrusion into question 7 saying, they are concerned that it reflects an exclusive advertising and marketing deal as opposed to an interest in the well being of the community or the state. they say the nfl changed league rule this year to allow casino advertising in stadiums. the redskins play their home games at fed-ex field in landover. the latest poll shows that gambling question in maryland too close to call with 9% of the voters still undecided. so both sides will be making a big push between now and election day. in montgomery county, chris gordon, news4. a lawmaker in montgomery county wants the county to have the capacity to impose a county wide gas tax. county council president said the county tax would help pay for transportation projects,
